Thai Noodles

  • 1 package clear Kelp noodles (like this 12 oz package)
  • 1 organic zucchini, chopped
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 3/4 cup broccoli sprouts
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup organic raw cashews
  • 2 Tablespoons cilantro, chopped for garnish (or mixed in – your choice ;))

Sauce

  • 1 Tablespoon Bragg Aminos (or Tamari)
  • 2 Tablespoons water
  • 1 Tablespoon lime juice, fresh squeezed
  • 1 Tablespoon raw almond butter
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil (optional)
  • 2 teaspoons Maple syrup or raw agave
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Start by placing one package of Kelp noodles in a bowl with 3 cups of water (or enough to cover the noodles) and 1/2 – 1 juiced lemon, 1 teaspoon of baking soda and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Let sit to soften while you prepare the rest of the ingredients. About 10 minutes.

Chop your veggies and combine in a large bowl with cashews. Set aside. Make the sauce by adding all ingredients to a tall cup and emulsifying with a hand blender like this one.

Drain your noodles and rinse well. Add to your bowl, toss with sauce and serve garnished with fresh chopped cilantro.

Enjoy!
